Summary: Part of a series that explores the origins and effects of those inventions that shape the modern world by traveling through history to bring to life the associative nature of change. In this episode the greatest medical accident in history starts a trail that leads to the search for Helen of Troy, police blotters, seventeenth-century flower-power and insurance statistics that help a Yale professor to invent soda pop and his son to find oil, that triggers work on microfossils and the kind of World War I bangs that started earthquake detection
